Holidays in August (2019 Calendar)

Hello everybody. It’s been a while, but I actually have some time on my hands to do some things before the school year starts. I also have a pretty light semester. I am hoping that this settles out a bit so I can do what I want to do on top of what I need to do. But, we must get to the holidays. August is Peach and Water Quality Month, which are both things I love. I’m also trying this new format, so tell me what you think about it.
